AUGUSTA, Maine — A Biddeford man has been sentenced to five months in jail for driving drunk with his 4-year-old son in the passenger seat.
Authorities say Tony Leland, 46, pleaded guilty in Kennebec County Superior Court to operating under the influence and endangering the welfare of a child.
Leland was pulled over Nov. 2 by a sheriff’s deputy in Sidney responding to a report of an erratic car.
The officer found a bottle of alcohol between the two front seats.
Police say Leland’s blood-alcohol content was more than three times the legal limit to drive.
The Kennebec Journal reports that Leland was sentenced to a suspended 364-day sentence for the OUI offense and ordered to serve 150 days on the child endangerment conviction. His license was suspended for three months.
